old Mosaics at the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Memorial - petition for saving them

In front of the Humboldtforum / rebuilded city castle they want to build an memorial for the reunification at the place of the old Kaiser-Wilhelm-Memorial. There still old Mosaics and now they want to move them to another place. I think, they sould save them at this place and create another memorial for the reunification, which coexist with this mosaics...

The mosaics show all state coat of arms of the old unificated german states into the german Reich/ Empire.

As a general rule, which parts of Berlin have the highest proportions of old architecture? Does Berlin have something like an "Aussere Neustadt" in Dresden where most/all of the buildings are old and well preserved?

^ The best preserved areas are in Prenzlauer Berg, Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain with very few losses.

And what areas where worst hit?

I also noticed, both in western and eastern parts of the city, that the lagre main streets have large portion of new buildings while the side-streets still have tho old ones.

Look at bing or google map. Areas with a high building density and few gaps were not that heavy damaged. Whereas areas with ribbon developments and large green parts were more damaged or "rebuild" in the 60s and 70s. For the inner parts of the city, this map might help. http://stadtentwicklung.berlin.de/pl...p/index.shtml#

But intact buildings are not the same as intact facades. Hard to generalize here. In some streets almost all buildings lost their stucco and in the next street most of them kept it.

Probably parts of Schöneberg and Wedding, as well as the centre. It can be hard to tell because vast numbers of existing buildings were also demolished after the war to make room for "the modern city".

Edit: The second plan in this document reveals, how much has been demolished after the war, the first plan shows war destruction (only inner city): Link 2

Here you can see new buildings built in during different periods.

Moabit, Wedding, Prenzlauer Berg/ Pankow, Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg, Schöneberg, Zehlendorf-Steglitz, Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf, all around the city center, the "Wilhelminscher Ring", but like Saxonia allready said, there are big differents. In the Center the Museum Iland and "Unter den Linden", also around the Kurfuerstendamm and Savignyplatz you can find many highclass old buildings.

Hm, but I think biggest highclass "Altbauten" / old buildings you can find around Savinyplatz and Kurfuerstendamm/ the northern part of the Kurfuerstendamm, the best preserved oldbuildings quarter of the city I think, also the 98% of the facades...

Prenzlauer Berg and Friedrichshain you have like 1/2 - 2/3 old buildings without stucco.

I would like to see this become reality.

Thank you for information. It's a pity... Kaiser-Wilhelm was probably politically incorrect in GDR, but chariots?
